No, it's not any of the Mackinac Island ferries either. I'm not convinced it was even a Great Lakes boat, at least not one that I have ever seen a picture of.

It looks like an excursion boat used out of Sandusky, Ohio to Put-in-Bay and or Pelee Island in Lake Erie. Maybe an old one not around anymore? The aerial shots could be Sandusky Bay?

No, not a Bob-Lo boat, not sure what boat that is. Is that "Mr. Whipple" the "Don't squeeze the Charm'in" toilt paper commercial guy?

No, it's not, though it appears to be some sort of an excursion vessel.

No. The hulls are not the same on the Columbia or Ste. Claire. Notice no portholes towards the stern on the Boblo boats.

I don't think it is; that one shot near the middle looks nothing like the Columbia or Ste. Claire. The stack is different, besides.

It is not the Columbia or Ste. Claire, it looks more like a 50-70's era Mackinaw Island ferry but even with that in mind the stack and deck configuration doesnt seem right.
